Take a bow, Jeremie Frimpong.

The Dutch international scored a screamer from long-range as Bayer Leverkusen beat Bayern Munich in the top-of-the-table clash.

Trailing 2-0 in the 94th minute of the game, Munich sent everyone up for a corner, including goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. Neuer almost got his head onto the ball, but Leverkusen managed to get it wide to Edmond Tapsoba.

The centre-back calmly fed the ball to Frimpong, who made a lung-bursting run into Munich’s half. While he was forced wide by the defenders at first, the former Manchester City youth star still fired off a long-range shot from out wide to score his side’s third of the game.

Neuer could not get back to the goals in time, and Munich's players, who tried to provide cover, could not get in the way of the shot.

The goal brought up his 18th for Leverkusen and his eighth of this season, Transfermarkt reported.

It also took his side five points clear of Thomas Tuchel’s team. Xabi Alonso’s men remain unbeaten in all competitions and continue their quest for that elusive Bundesliga title.

Leverkusen aim to end trophy drought

With 13 games to go in the season, Leverkusen are in pole position to win their first Bundesliga title. Alonso's men are also in the semi-final of the DFB Pokal and are still in the running for the Bundesliga title.

Frimpong ditches Ghana for the Netherlands

Sports Brief previously reported why Jeremie Frimpong opted to play for the Netherlands instead of Ghana.

The Bayer Leverkusen player was born to Ghanaian and Dutch parents and spent over half his life in Great Britain.

Despite being contacted by the Black Stars, Frimpong admitted that he was only focused on playing for the Dutch.
